How many pounds have you lost and gained over the past decade of yo-yo dieting?
It’s pretty frightening to think about, isn’t it? And if you’re like most people, you have no idea about the answer – and you’d rather not know.
Because you’ve been fed so much baloney by the pushers of diet products promising you the world in terms of weight loss.
It’s no wonder everyone is confused.
One week they’re promoting an all-liquid diet…
The next week they’re promoting a single vegetable diet…
Then there are the debates that go back and forth about whether certain foods are healthy or not.
The egg is a great example of this annoying scenario.
I know that you’ve seen the great debates about eggs on the news…
All I can do is shake my head when I see these food debates and I think to myself that dieting is mostly common sense but we’ve been conditioned and brainwashed to believe that it’s complicated.
That brings me to my next point, which is how often to eat to lose weight.
Eat Every 2 To 3 Hours
When I say eat every two to three hours, I’m not talking about full-course meals here…
I’m talking about small nutritious little meals, which consist of lean meats, fruits, veggies, and complex carbs.
For example, a well-rounded lunch would be a small or medium baked chicken breast, a dark leafy green salad with low-fat dressing, and a cup of baked yams.
If that’s not a tasty power lunch, I don’t know what is!
The reason eating smaller meals every 2 to 3 hours boosts your metabolism and helps you to burn fat is because it keeps your blood sugar levels stable and prevents you from overeating in the first place.
You are providing your body with just enough clean-burning fuel to perform well while reducing your chances of consuming more calories than it needs at the end of the day, which of course will be stored as fat.
To be perfectly honest, if you simply begin eating small meals every 2 to 3 hours on a consistent basis, I bet that you’ll drop extra pounds in a matter of weeks.
When you combine eating nutritious little meals every 2 to 3 hours with exercise, you can’t help but lose weight.
I’m all about keeping fitness simple because a lot of times simple systems produce better results.
I remember when I began my quest to get fit, the more complicated I made my diet and training program, the fewer improvements I made…
When I simplified my workout programs and diet, the more progress that I made.
The perfect analogy is, “Less Is More!”
This is just the beginning!
So get to it – you’re going to be glad you did!
